As a parent, you probably know how difficult it can be to keep little ones busy. Here are some ideas for fun things to do this Easter. Fun fact; they may involve eggs!

Egg Hunt

So let's start with the obvious. The egg hunt is one of the best Easter activities for kids! It's a great activity for kids of all ages and it can be done indoors or outdoors. You can even have your children hide the eggs and search for them afterwards!

Also, check with your local community centre to see if they're hosting one, or ask around to find out if friends are planning on having one at their house. It's fun to create your own Easter eggs by hiding plastic eggs filled with candy, trinkets and maybe even a little cash for the kids to find.

Decorate Eggs

Decorating eggs is a classic Easter activity that both moms and kids can enjoy. There are so many different ways to decorate eggs. You can use stickers or stamps, paint them with markers, or use more traditional methods like colouring kits or even food colouring!

Have an Egg Race

An egg race is another great activity for kids and adults alike! Simply place two hard-boiled eggs on each side of a table and have both players race to see who can get their egg across first by blowing on it. This is sure to provide some laughs and fun competition between family members.

Go to Church

For some families, going to church is one of their most treasured rituals. Faith gives people a depth of spirit and a relationship with the rest of the community. Easter is a good time as any to teach the kids that believing in something bigger than themselves is a good thing.

Easter brunch

Start your day off right with a special celebration at one of the restaurants or hotels offering an Easter brunch. If going out to brunch on Mother's Day is too much of a hassle, celebrating Easter with a meal out might be just the ticket.

Many hotels and restaurants have special Easter brunch offerings, complete with omelette stations, carving stations and special beverages. Sometimes it's nice to let someone else do the cooking and cleaning for a change.
